Cass County Courthouse in Atlantic

This is Cass County’s fourth courthouse, designed by Dougher, Rich and Woodburn and built in 1934. It is one of ten Iowa courthouses from the P.W.A. era that earned entry in 2003 to the National Register of Historic Places. It is constructed of concrete and tan brick, and features many art deco details – check the stone work and metal design on the doors, windows, and light fixtures.

A large city park across the street has a large memorial honoring all Cass County war veterans, and a log cabin.
